iRiver Lplayer in US

iRiver this morning made official its US release of the Lplayer. The portable media device is one of the company's smallest and manages to fit a two-inch LCD by using the same D-click control system as the Clix, which uses taps on the edges to navigate menus. It also promises broader format support than most players with FLAC and OGG audio as well as XviD video joining more typical MP3, WAV, WMA, MPG, and WMV support.

An FM radio is onboard with support for recording radio shows directly to the player's flash storage. Recording time isn't measured, though iRiver explains that the device will play music for 12 hours and video for four.

The player ships in black, pink, and white color options and is priced at $110 for a 4GB version, with an 8GB model costing $160. The first 100,000 players are said to come preloaded with a long 14-minute music video by Muse.
